I am excited to share this recipe for Enchiladas using Mission® Carb Balance Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps. For adults looking for lower carb options, the Mission® Carb Balance Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps are a great substitute for traditional flour tortillas. Enjoy a hearty dinner without many of the carbs found in typical enchilada recipes.

We have enjoyed exploring new recipes during our low carb journey. Switching out ingredients and recipes to those that are better for you is always a win!

It’s Not Too Late to Make Better Food Choices!

I can honestly say, we haven’t always eaten the best foods. Yes, my husband and I have gone for those convenience foods for snacks and meals over the years. We all know that adds up to a lot of carbs and sugar.

Being busy with work, parenting, and life in general can keep us from making the best food choices. After a while we knew we had to focus on eating better and taking care of ourselves. More recently, my husband and I started a low carb journey that has led us to discovering awesome new recipes and products! We are more excited about fresh foods, and don’t feel like we are “missing out” by choosing lower carb foods.

My favorite thing about the Mission® Carb Balance Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps is their spinach flavor. They add a great taste to fresh wraps, which my husband and I enjoy now and then for a light lunch! When using these wraps in my enchilada recipe I found they are comparable to traditional
wraps or tortillas in texture and ease of use. Mission® Foods is focusing on offering Better Choices Made Easy, which I love!

Easy-to-use ingredients are a must for me. Even if I am just cooking a weeknight dinner for my husband and myself, my time is important! I am not a fan of complicated ingredients or recipes, so this product was perfect for my Low Carb Chicken Enchiladas recipe.

Mission® Carb Balance Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps are packaged just like the flour tortillas I’ve always used. They are ready to go right out of the package.

With these wraps I did notice the zesty spinach flavor. I believe it complements the flavors of the enchiladas nicely. For those that prefer to have nutritional details before trying them out, each wrap contains 60 calories and 3g of net carbs. They also have Zero Trans Fat, Cholesterol,
and Zero Sugars.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes

  • ● 1 package of Mission® Carb Balance Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps
  • ● 1 /2 lbs. Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts (approximately 3)
  • ● 2 cups chicken broth
  • ● 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • ● 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ● 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ● 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • ● 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ● 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • ● 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • ● 1 cup of Mexican Blend Cheese
  • ● 1 cup of your favorite tomatillo sauce
  • ● Cilantro for garnish

Instructions

    Precook chicken breasts: Add chicken and chicken broth into electric pressure cooker.

    Arrange chicken breasts side by side in bottom of the pot, and cover with broth.

    Mix all spices together in a separate small bowl and then evenly sprinkle over the top of
    the chicken.

    On your Pressure Cooker, lock lid into place and select your pressure cooker setting and
    cook for 10 minutes, following manufacturer’s directions.

    Alow for natural pressure release (do not manually release) for 10 minutes.

    Remove chicken breast and place into bowl and shred. (Two forks work well). If desired,
    add a small amount of cooking liquid from your pressure cooker pot to give chicken extra
    flavor.

    Assemble Enchiladas: Add a small amount of chicken to each Mission® Carb Balance
    Spinach Herb Tortilla Wrap. Roll and place into cast iron skillet, seam side down.

    After you have added all of your enchiladas (5-6), pour tomatillo sauce over the top. Cover
    with cheese.

    Insert cast iron pan into preheated oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes, or until
    cheese is melted.

    Top with chopped cilantro (optional) and serve immediately.

Notes

Ensure chicken has been fully cooked and reads 165 degrees internal temp before shredding. You can opt to pre-cook chicken in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until done.
